“Report of progressing common aggravations along gwagwalada – giri street by political hooligans. Strain is as of now high as traffic is at present being blocked.
“Advisory: Approach region with Caution,” Eons Intelligence tweeted on Friday morning.
JUSTNEWSNG reports that recently elected council chairman and councilors which expected to have been confirmed today, were requested to hang tight for one more year following a court’s organization.
Recall that The Peoples Democratic Party had on Thursday portrayed the court’s judgment as a call for turmoil and significant danger to harmony in the country’s capital Territory.
the opposition party depicted the judgment as “odd and an extremely perilous plan by APC, in intrigue with specific legal officials, to condense our democratic system and foist turmoil on our country.”
Challenging the judgment at a press briefing, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, expressed: “The unmistakable aim of this judgment is to condense our electing process; overthrow the whole result of the FCT Area Council elections hung on Saturday, February 12, 2022, which was predominantly won by PDP candidate; end the swearing-in of the recently chosen chairmen and councilors; and force an undemocratic government on the FCT.
“The PDP passionately and without prevarication dismisses the judgment completely. This judgment can’t be executed, as it is unlawful, unlawful, unjustifiable and without any legitimate establishment and thinking for execution.”
PDP contended that the four-year tenure accommodated the chairmen and councilors in the new Electoral Act 2022, whereupon the judgment is based, can’t be made retroactive to apply to active executives and councilors, who were chosen under the 2010 Electoral Act, which accommodated a three-year tenure starting from the date of their swearing-in.
